Unwanted items are often left on New York City sidewalks for garbage pickup, but turning someone else’s trash into your treasure could land you in trouble with the law.
“We used to have three pickups a day here in Astoria. We are down to one,” New York State Assemblywoman Aravella Simotas, who represents the area, said.
Enforcement of alternate side parking rules will resume in Hoboken Monday morning, as the city works to clear away snow from parking lanes.
New Yorkers were surprisingly sympathetic to the Herculean task of New York’s strongest, battling the elements and trying to keep ahead of the mountains of garbage in the snowiest January on record.
Along with clearing mountains of snow, sanitation workers are also getting ready to start collecting garbage again, and not a moment too soon.
